... which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and a santa to ot! [ chuckles ] right, baby. oh, sir. that is a customer. oh...sorry about that. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stss. fedex office. >> the big story this morning is a big name and you know it and probably own it. apple had its worst trading day in four years and it's facing real competition from the samsung galaxy, its smart phone market in china is down, but perhaps more importantly, investors are selling, piling out, taking profits before the new year when the tax on profit goes up. if you have an american-based mutual fund, apple is probably in it. let's look at apple's stock price pre-market right now. i'm afraid ladies and gentlemen, we're down again and it's probably going to open $9 lower than yesterday. and nicole is on the floor of the new york stock exchange, and tell me, is anybody down there talking about apple at this price as a buying opportunity? >> 100%, everybody is talking about apple. when i'm talking to traders what they're
, the science experiments and such that we do on the international space station? are we in good shape to stay ahead of the curve? or do you think we are falling behind? >> no. i think we are way ahead of the curve. not only do we have the international space station, but there is a tremendous amount of private initiative that is going on in space now. it's a more exciting time. i think than i have ever seen in space. principally because we have private industry, i'm part of a nonprofit organization, putting a telescope into space. i mean, there is a tremendous amount of individual initiative and private initiative that the u.s. is leading on. >> jamie: you are tracking asteroids. >> i have been working protecting the earth from asteroid impacts for 10 or 15 years. right now, we have developed the capability to deflect an asteroid, if it is heading for earth. what we are doing now is putting up a telescope in order to provide good, early morning. -- warning. so it's eye a very exciting time. we have private people, flying supplies back and forth to the international space station. a recent ann
guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> we'll kick off opening bell in a minute in a half. stocks had good action in shanghai overnight. a four-week high. the only disappointment has been data in europe. the scuttlebutt that some members wanted to cut which has put pressure on the euro today. >> german market up twice what we're up and i think people are shaking their heads that netherlands could be up. we don't see any data whatsoever that europe is doing better but belief that 2013 can't be as bad as 2012. german numbers were not good at all. it's a puzzle. >> we did get an earthquake in northeastern japan overnight. 7.3 is serious. looks like we dodged a bullet on that front as well. doesn't look like there's any damage as a result of that. >> i thought there would be a tremendous rebuilding effort in fukushima. it didn't happen because the ground is contaminated. the first question they asked over there were nuclear reactors apparently safe is the early word. >> we walk in on monday
and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> i think we'll take it one step at a time. we'll sort of get over the marriage thing first, then look at kids but obviously we want a family so we have to start thinking about that. >> prince william and the then kate middleton before their wedding talking about their plans to start a family one day. well, that day has apparently arrived. katie nicholl is the author of "william and harry behind the palace walls "and is here to talk about today's breaking royal baby news. >> it's finally happened. the truth is ever since you and i were there on that wedding day reporting from buckingham palace, everyone has been on royal baby bump watch, and every time the duchess of cambridge has stepped out perhaps looking a little fuller in the face, a little rounder on her tummy, that rumor mill has just gone into overdrive. is she pregnant. well, yes, today we can reveal and confirm that she is indeed pregnant, which is wonderful and very joyful news, both herself, prince william an
. and the first thing i thought was because we are not teaching them sciences or computer or technology. much of it had to do with up can't even answer a phone. you don't have social skills. you can't say please and thank you and do as you are told. what? >> i would like to see that report. i was just talking to someone that does manufacturing who works so many manufacturing policy in the government that said some of the numbers are overblown. some of those numbers, in fact are. i think you had someone from the consulting group saying? of those numbers are because -- you know, employers are not training and are not paying up for the skills. >> some of the argument has been that our education is so dismal we are not teaching people -- hold the phone for a minute here. dana bash from capitol hill is joining me. i heard your question. it was right on point. it was, i believe, question number one for the speaker. which was -- are you willing to start negotiating on the numbers of that top taxation issue between 35 and 39.5. you didn't get your answer. >> reporter: i didn't get my answer. but -- c
the science behind every shape, size and shade of these pixels. >> you now have your camouflage. we're trying to trick the brain into seeing things that aren't actually there. >> reporter: digital patterns re-create shapes already found in nature and 3d layering creates depth and shadows where none exist. that's today's design. but developers already have one eye on tomorrow. >> what's coming up down the road and very quickly is the harry potter cloak. >> what is it. >> reporter: with that fictional cloak, harry isn't just camouflage, he's invisible. >> my body's gone. >> reporter: how invisible are we talking here? if i walked into a room with a soldier wearing one of these cloaks -- >> you wouldn't see him at all. he would be completely invisible to you. >> reporter: this isn't make believe. the military has seen this quantum stealth technology. it works by bending the light around an object, even conceal most of a person's shadow. imagine what that could do for a sniper hiding in a field or the american pilots who ejected over libya when their fighter jets crashed last year. >> they could
